This review examines a mechanism for the initiation of osteoarthritis after anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injury by considering the relationship between reported ambulatory changes after ACL injury, cartilage adaptation to load, and the association between cartilage loads during walking and regional variations in cartilage structure and biology. Taken together, these observations suggest that cartilage degeneration after ACL injury could be caused by a kinematic gait change that shifts… CONTINUE READING
